weatFor anyone who remembers VICE when it was an edgy innovative organization that made rapid status for itself by speaking the unvarnished truth about places like Liberia and North Korea and about interesting subjects like Datura, (Scopolamine) the drug that makes people so suggestible they may give away everything they own to strangers after a single unaware dose of it, this article may be painful to read.
Not long ago, VICE did a video on the aftermath of the murders of the Jewish people and attempted murder of free speech advocates in Denmark where they had a woman in tears defending islam and ignoring it’s victims, saying that the real tragedy was the image of islam by Danes. The woman looked so much like she staged the whole thing, as the speech she gave as a ‘woman on the street’ interview was so perfectly delivered yet through spontaneous tears of grief that, at least last time I looked, even VICE felt it was too much and took down the video altogether.
Since then, all kinds of VICE videos dealing with islam have appeared which frequently use common deceptions to sell the narrative of a hijacked islam. And lets not even mention the ‘interview’ they gave Justin Trudeau which has to have been scripted by his own campaign managers. I can’t link to the Danish video because they took it down. But Im sure its out there somewhere should it be needed.
In the 3 part video, ‘The War Against Boko Haram’ they manage a massive amount of ‘lie by omission.’ In part 1 they only interview muslim ‘victims’ of Boko Haram’s outrageous horrors against the Nigerian population and never mention any of the enormous number of Churches and Christian targets of Boko Haram, nor do they interview any Christian victims, nor do they bother to mention the full name of that group, “Group of the People of Sunnah for Preaching and Jihad”. An odd omission for a documentary on this same group.
The narrative runs that this group are not muslims but merely criminals with no agenda other than crime for no particular reason and their actions run contrary to islamic teaching. A point their muslim family of victims makes directly to the VICE reporter, but there is no attribution given to these teachings which Boko Haram is running afoul of. It could also be noticed that his family was allowed to leave because they were muslim. The Christians never seem to get that sort of mercy. Typically if you cannot prove you muslim credentials to one of these monsters you don’t get to give an interview to VICE news. You get killed.
The narrative also runs in part 1 that the problem may be because Christians control the part of the country that has natural resources and the wealth is not distributed to the muslim parts of the country. It fails to mention however whether or not the islamic side of Nigeria actually educates any of its citizens in anything that might generate wealth or whether islamic law forbids such education, which is what the name Boko Haram, specifically means. ‘Western Education is Forbidden’. But the idea is, to create doubt in the viewer as to the fact that Boko Haram is a muslim terrorist group seeking to replace democracy and secular law with the sharia and hudud (Islamic punishments) and that the motives are entirely based on islam and islamic doctrine, as the kidnapping and enslaving of non-muslim women wherever they can, illustrates rather clearly as slavery is a big part of Islamic culture and dogma.
In Part II they manage to interview a soldier who explains that they, Boko Haram, attacked churches, but they are not really muslims but just devils. Still no footage of the attacks on Churches or the stated goals of Boko Haram as creators of an islamic state in Africa, despite the internet being so full of this material you need delouser to avoid seeing it. The message that Christians and muslims are united against BK is repeated like a Buddhist mantra but with no actual evidence to support it.
In part III the soldiers they show at the start use terms like “grace” and “father” and “heart” during prayers, which VICE calls a “toast” while drinking and smoking cigarettes. This leads me to suspect they may not be muslims. A lot of the rest of it is tactical minutia. It does look like the Nigerian Army has some reactive armor on their tanks though. Thats gotta help as well as some serious air power. And if you want to know what happened to your old Ramones T shirt, you get to find out at the end.
But one thing is for sure. VICE is now part of the effort to propagandize the public into the Obama/Cameron plan of reinventing islam with the hope that either muslims will believe it and stop following islamic examples or at least the public will not act up and make their governments uncomfortable as we are all slowly being forced to give up our own rights and freedoms and customs and accept a sharia one.
